PC 360 PS3 Sometimes, the skull does not get automatically removed from the inventory after learning Summon Arvak and finishing the quest. It is no longer considered a quest item, however, which would allow it to be removed from the inventory through normal means (e.g. selling it to merchants, dropping it, storing it in a container).
Getting off Arvak near the barrier where Valerica is located in the Soul Cairn may cause the dismount animation to glitch the Dragonborn through the barrier and put them on Valerica's side.
